Sometimes to find your life's true path, you have to stray outside the lines.
Scarlet Santana is never happier than when creating fabulous fashions for women of all shapes and sizes. Now, after years of hard work, she finally has the chance to live her dream and study under the hottest designer in New York. To raise money for her move, Scarlet opens an after-hours sewing school in a local record shop, teaching a type-A working mom whose rigid parenting style is causing her family to unravel and an enigmatic seamstress with a mysterious past.
But as stitches give way to secrets and classmates become friends, the women realize an important truth: There is no single pattern for a good life. Happiness is always a custom fit.

I have never read a book about the art of sewing before.
Tavia Gilbert's performance gave me the feelings of the charaters weather they were older designers or the young dreamers. The feelings of the beginners learning and overcoming their fears .
Yes, but I didn't. The perfect time for me was in my sewing room with a pot of tea surrounded by fabric with a new project. It was relaxing and interesting.
We need more books about enjoying working alone and being creative . We should encourage people to raise their crafts to an art form.
